Minding our mental health involves taking care of ourselves to avoid becoming overwhelmed by everyday stresses or sudden traumas. Managing our responses to these events can help us to cope in our everyday lives.
The demands of day-to-day living can lead to mental stress, which can in turn lead to mental health difficulties and result in parents and carers feeling as though they are unable to cope.
Your child’s mental health involves how they think and feel about themselves, others and how they interpret events in everyday life. It is their ability to cope with change, transition, significant life events and stresses they may face daily.
Understanding your Child's Mental Health Difficulty
If your child is struggling with a mental health difficulty it may be affecting how they think, feel, and act. It may also impact how they manage stress, cope in their day-to-day life, relate to others, and make choices.
After significant research and development, ISPCC Childline is proud to introduce to you our campaign aimed at 8-11 year-olds: Talking Makes us Stronger – featuring Headbomz: a brain-poppingly fun way to remind children that talking builds emotional resilience.
